Wilbur Goh - Bird Guide


Birding has been a passion of Wilbur’s since he started at an early age of 12. With over 20 years of experience, this has enabled him to thoroughly know Malaysian birds and bird sites. Over the years, extensive travelling the length and breath of Malaysia has allowed him to see and experience as many birds as possible gaining an enviable list.

Wilbur stays connected with many related organizations such as Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) and the Wild Bird Club Malaysia (WBCM) where he served as Secretary of the MNS Bird Conservation Council's Records Committee and Trip Leader leading numerous exciting trips for the MNS Selangor Branch Bird Group.

An amateur photographer, he enjoys exploring new sites with each course rewarding him at every turn. Follow him on his Facebook page.

    I had seen Wilbur’s name mentioned in trip reports from prestigious bird tour companies and having looked at his website I asked him to organise a tour of Peninsular Malaysia for 6 friends. Pre tour Wilbur was an absolute pleasure to deal with as he communicated so clearly and promptly. His website makes customised planning for independent birders a breeze; we found it clear, concise and accurate. On tour his exceptional birding skills ensured that we had a memorable experience. Not only did he find some exceptional birds but we also learnt so much about Malaysian history, culture and cuisine.”

    Just got back from a fantastic trip to the world famous Taman Negara National Park in Malaysia where I had the pleasure to be shown around by bird guide extraordinaire, Wilbur Goh. If you want a highly professional, efficient and friendly guiding service then Wilbur is the man. Nothing is too much trouble and he capably fixed us with additional excursions to listen for owls and frogmouths as well as an excellent night safari for leopard cats, civets and slow loris. His super-human hearing and lightning fast ID skills bagged us a number of species we just wouldn't have seen without his help - I can't recommend him highly enough.”
